So this is quite the random posting mixed with yellow, popcorn and art (like the title says)
First off let's start with the yellow.
I have been loving adding sunshine to my house through adding bits of yellow here and there. It really brightened the place up. I ended up getting a few more things the other day.
This birdcage that I saw and fell in love with. This has dual purposes, decorative as well as a photo prop for my photo shoots. (The trunk underneath also serves both purposes. I bought that at a liquidation centre when I was out on a girls days with my Mom and sisters. Charity pointed it out to me, knowing that I have been coveting hers and Chelsea's trunks)
My next purchase....2 more throw pillows to accent my bright yellow ones. I LOVE these (we shall see how long the yellow cushions last in a house with 6 kids) What do you think?
I came across this great idea over on the Best Bites Blog. It is for using regular popcorn kernels and making your own, healthier microwave popcorn. Loved the idea, and had to try it out.
I poured the kernels into the bag, folded the top of the bag over twice. Put it in the microwave on the popcorn setting. (I just do it until I hear the popping pretty much stop)
Now onto the Art portion of the post.
Anyone who knows my eldest daughter, Kaitlyn, knows how much she LOVES Archie comics and is always drawing. Look at this awesome painting she did recently. My husband liked it so much that he framed it. He had given the kids canvases one day and told them to go ahead and paint whatever they felt like. This was hers.
I decided to personalize a sketch pad that I had recently got from the dollar store.
So here is what I started with:
This was the final result:
Something simple, but fun and personal. I was a huge Archie comic fan growing up.
